Discovering the Beauty of Wisdom

Mindy Mandell



What does it mean to follow Platonic philosophy as a spiritual path - to take the words of the ancient Platonists seriously and to explore them as a guide for the inner life?

This book tackles that question by presenting the philosophy of the Platonic tradition from a perspective that is informed by a personal commitment of many years' standing. The author writes, "Once I found Platonism, I never looked back. This is a tradition that is both deeply spiritual and also rigorous in its treatment of metaphysics. The language of pure metaphysics presents the study of the divine essence of Reality in terms that are not limited to any single religious tradition. The Platonists instead speak straight to the soul."
